Mourinho is relishing the chance to work with Pogba and admits the challenge now is to get the best out of someone he reckons is delighted to be back at the club he left in 2012.
Mourinho added: “he’s a very young player, an unbelievable midfield player with such physicality but, at the same time, such agility, co-ordination, skill.
“He has everything. What he has to learn now is how to play with us because I always say that in football you can be a super player, like he is, but a team is a team and you need to learn how to play in the team, and the team needs to learn how to play with you.
“We need to get the best out of him and this will be a process. So if he needs protection, I am here to protect.
